These bar cookies are a great replacement to the classic brownie! Try using grated orange zest in the place of the vanilla for a citrusy twist!

These bars are really good! I followed the recipe to the letter...except i only had a 9x13 pan so I baked the bars for about 30 minutes until they were golden brown on top and the center was set. These aren't too sweet and have a nice oat-y flavor and crumb. They beg for a glass of cold milk! Be sure to completely cool the bars prior to cutting...don't be tempted to try them early because they will just fall apart while warm! Read More

The Bars themselves were very tasty but the texture of the bars was very crumbly and messy. Read More

This was just okay for me. I would suggest adding a teaspoon of salt to balance out the sweetness of these bars. Read More

As other reviewers suggested I added about 1/2 teaspoon salt to counteract the sweetness and the taste was great. Also as another reviewer noted this is basically the recipe on the back of the Nestle Butterscotch chip package. I was looking to halve the recipe(didn't want 4 doz. cookies) and was able to recalculate it here. I would make this again. Read More

This is a pretty good recipe. Like others before me I added a teaspoon of salt. The recipe is basically the same one off the butterscotch morsels on the Nestle package so it is obviously a good start. I also added a little more vanilla and extra cinnamon to give it a little more. I also baked at 350 for about 35-40 minutes because I used a slightly different pan size. Read More

You will need to bake it twice as long as the recipe states. Very very rich. More for children's tastes. Next time I'd use less butterscotch chips. Read More

Wow! I was looking for an oatmeal and butterscotch chip bar and this was exactly what I wanted! It was SO yummy. I think I'll be making these much more often than regular oatmeal cookies! Everyone in my house loved them! Read More
